The Top Ten

He is one of best rhymers of all time. Listen to rap god and you will see who is really the best
Definitely the best rapper of 2013-2014. nas is a better rapper overall though


Eminent is the best no question about
[Newest]Best rapper of all time... Not of 2014 though

2Kendrick Lamar
It's early in the year to tell who's the best. But if this year is anything like last year, Kendrick will more than likely be making some of the larger impacts on hip-hop. This list shouldn't involve people like Eminem or Nas. They've already been through the ring and proven their skills and will forever be known as some of the best to ever do it. Eminem & Nas don't have to make any more impact on Hip-Hop because they've already made their impact.
He will dominate this year especially after not winning a Grammy that should set him off even more
Kendrick is dope as hell and a great lyricst. I'm really glad Drake isn't on this list.
[Newest]His a great rapper

Drake is a lyrical genius, his metaphors are constantly stuck in my head.
Drake is terrible... His old stuff was sooo good but he is to much like Lil Wayne a fake rapper who only cares about money clothes weed and girls. Eminem, Kendrick, yelawolf, and slaughterhouse would kill young money any day 😁😜
Drake is the best and there is no question about it
[Newest]He's got vocals as well as the rap talent

4J. Cole
Cole is the best mainstream lyricist we have today (you can swap Kendrick and cole for the 1 & 2 spots, doesn't matter) plus he's a great producer. He can do it all, he stays consistent. I've never heard a bad verse/song from this guy, he's gonna be here for a long time building a great legacy.
I have just recently found out about J. Cole and I am already really interested and I wanna buy all his music he is really good this rank is good for him
Cole is a fantastic rapper and producer
[Newest]J. Cole gives me chills whenever I listen to em lyrics

5Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne is funny. Made a sharp turn down, not even a hill. Anyways anything after carter ii should of been postponed to a later life where real music hasn't been played.
Lil Wayne is the best rapper I have ever know in my life and he is the best in the world
Wayne used to be a good rapper with the potential to leave a lasting legacy. Too bad he quit rapping in 2008. Now he just days the same thing over and over to different beats and hopes you idiots don't notice. Now he's ruined drake and nikki too. But I understand where he's coming from, why make quality music when you can recycle the same and make more money? After all, the dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum.


Lil Wayne should be third he rocks 😏

6Kanye West
Kanye should be in the top 3 his music is way better than 2 chains and lil Wayne because unlike them his music makes sense and doesn't repeat itself with the same 1 word the whole time his music also has meaning unlike 2 chains and lil Wayne who rap about nothing
Not after what he did to taylor swift


What Jay-z should be second he's awesome at rapping
Should be up there
He is better than all other rappers I love him

Too good not to be on top ten.
He is superb best rapper
I think nas because the media shouldn't go by who raping gangster all the time they surposely go by someone who spits knowledge and ganster rap this person nas is like a literacy legend rapper he surposely be up in the top 5

9Tyler, the Creator
Probably the greatest and most "unique" rapper there is
He's an amazing rapper

Machine gun Kelly is legit. And he is bringing in more people from the white communities being a fare skinned rapper. He drops real lines and does it in style
MGK is better than Eminem
MGK is a newcommer but hands down will one day be as great as Eminem.

The Contenders

112 Chainz
Where's Chief Keef Though?
2 chains is past hiz prime. Should be retired rite now
2 Chainz is awesome he should be higher than #5

12Kid Cudi
Cudi has been the best since his first album. He's just too mellow so peoples these days don't know him. Is really good though
Hear his new album
Kid cudis music you can relate too so much and he's better than all these rappers on the list because he is unique he does his own style of music and makes it work none of these rappers could ever dream of being as dynamic as cudi period.
[Newest]Best Artist alive, everything he raps/sings about is true to who he is. I haven't heard a bad song by Cudi

13Juicy J
I like the rap part in Dark Horse that he sang. it's my favorite part in the song!
Should be number 4

14Meek Mill
Meek Mill is the best all time rapper if anything Kendrick Lamar should be first but then him second without a doubt he is one of the best rappers in the world atm should at least be in top 5.
This chart is so inaccurate he's definitely number one
Meek Mill is so dope most of my songs are by him

15Snoop Dogg/Zilla/Lion/Doggy Dogg
He a the best rapper ever back in the days I don't see why he not now
He is legend of rap
He should be #7 or #8

Flow is sick, goes so hard. I don't usually like skaters like tyler the creator and the new lil Wayne, but hop is so good
If you've never heard of HOPSIN, take this time now to go f yourself... Have a nice day😊 #realist
Realest rapper next to wiz
[Newest]Hopsin without a doubt should be at least in the number 10 spot he deserves it

I think Macklemore Is amazing he writes his own songs his songs are always in the charts and he is great I concert
Macklemore is one of the best and most inspirational rappers I have heard.
Macklemore does not deserve to be here, he's a goofy white kid who dosnt know how to rap. There are a lot better rappers out there then him. He honestly sucks.

18Schoolboy Q

19Chance the Rapper
He makes tasty ass jams

20Mac Miller
Way better than MGK... Him and Bronson are the best white rappers right now
Best white rapper right now
One of them should be lower


21Childish Gambino
On another level. Seems to do music he feels instead of what corps want. Different is good and D Glover seems to be onto something special.

2250 Cent
He's been here since the beginning and is considered one of the most powerful rappers in history
He is genius and my favorite

23Big Sean
Big sean should be #19
He is the best ever 👌

24Joey Badass
New York's ace in the hole!

Joey gonna get his moment and correct the mainstream "rap" game!
This year his studio debut album. Can't wait, future of rap

25Wiz Khalifa
Man he's really good try to get this dude to top 5 if you have anytime go listen to his music
Why is my boy Wiz not in the top 10?
Can't Say bad he is so Amazing Best song true colors
[Newest]Wiz should be #1

He is better than Drake.

Come on people you have to recognize the future of rap Logic is the future of rap listen to his music he will be number one in the next year
Logic is better than half of these guys above him. He really has a story in raps and his album will show you too.
Sick behind the MIC and gets down on beats. Watch logic drop his album and nigh end up on the top 5. Better than Kanye, drake, lil Wayne.
[Newest]Logic brings smooth flows with a good voice and relatable lyrics. Young stud. Look for him on the come up in the future

Best ever. Lyrics from 80s are still better than most lyrics today.

29Ace Hood

30Iggy Azalea
Does not belong here she is berter than nicki


32A$AP Rocky
Most dope of all fashion killa
People vote 4 him his a good rapper he should be #7
A$AP is a real rapper, one of the only real G's left in the game, don't doubt rocky he will bring out some good music, Multiply, Wild for the night, goldie, etc

33Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

34Nicki Minaj
What the hell is this doing in this list? I think someone wanted to add this in the Worst Rappers list and a mistake happened and put a key or two keys wrong and Nicki Minaj was added in this list.


She a good rapper
Girl Nicki is amazing! Did you know that the amount her wardrobe could buy over four hundred sport cars?! She's my second favorite rapper, my favorite is Eminem

35Earl Sweatshirt
Earl's got lyrics. Definitely should be in top 10 in a real rap chart.


37Dr. Dre
He is a great music composer

38Sage the Gemini
Like that new dope song he droped out about 5 months ago


40The Game


42Rick Ross
I don't really like Deadmau5 that much, but will go to their show anyway to see Rick as the opener.
Next year's world tour with him being the opening act for Deadmau5 should really help increase his popularity.
I see rows as the best rapper his album even tells

43Reza Pishro
King of Tehran - 021
King of Persian rap

48Lupe Fiasco
Has a message and a flow and is lyrical should be top 10

50Lil Boosie
Lil boosie is a beast
You Guys Are Crazy Just Like One Of His Songs Search Lil Boosie Crazy That Song Is The Best And Yall Need Too Put Boosie At The To Like #10

51Young Thug
Young Thug has a way with words even though we don't know what he's saying

Great New Zealand artist


58Jon Connor
Oh boy he is the future and the now.

He should be ranked from #1-3

He is the peoples rapper...
Oh boy he is the future and the now...
This whole list is a joke without Connor at like #1 or 2... depends on how Shady's doing. So far this year Connor wins with 1 freestyle and a mixtape. Quit sleepin on him.

83Lil Jay

Top Dawg's newest member, he's still the underdog at their camp. He's gotta shine brighter than his TDE brothers doubt he'd get to Kendrick's level but DAAMN Cilvia Demo was a solid SOLID album
